Bayou St. John Reviews

New Orleans has a lot of options on the margins. High-paying, white collar jobs are pretty prevalent, and a person with the right degrees and connections can pretty easily find a job in the area. There are a few sectors that are expanding pretty quickly in the area. Being a tourism hub, there are also plenty of low-paying service industry jobs. However, there is definitely a lacking in middle-class employment that makes it sort of high stakes since you can either sneak into the high-paying jobs or fall into crappy low wage jobs pretty easily.

The residents of my neighborhood are always willing to lend a helping hand. The atmosphere, however is something that isn't well suited for me but maybe for others. The level of friendliness is somewhat overwhelming for me considering I'm a person that prefers to stay to them-self. I like the fact that I can get around easy via bike, but I would rather do so in a less populated area. In short the environment is ideal for a lot of people , just not for me.
Fall and spring are heavenly with temperatures in the 70s and low humidity. Once summer hits, the humidity jumps up pretty significantly which makes it hot and sweaty all day. Winters are hit or miss, although rarely gets below freezing.
